I have an 89 2WD S10. The frame has been sandblasted and painted.
Unfortunately the plastic clips used to retain the brake and fuel lines where not removed
before blasting and no longer exist.
I cannot find them on Rock Auto. Is there somewhere I can get replacements?
Or is there an alternative that can be used?


Thanks
Bob Workman

If you are referring to the clips along the frame, you may be SOL for finding OEM clips to purchase. Dorman does make some "generic" clips, but should be avoided, as they are junk; they are apparently made from a hard plastic that easily breaks (even just trying to mount them). A salvage yard might be an option, but given the parts' age they may be brittle and prone to breaking upon removal. Another option might be a cushioned clamp (see photo). These are generally available at parts supply stores and could be bolted to the frame or wherever needed, probably with a self tapping screw.
